over for the new year celebrations smile.gif

Lots of stuff to do that we havent got round to before such as the quad biking and off-roading which would be awesome in the snow I reckon :D

If it's dry then I think I can find somewhere to spend the day ;)

Just come back from 4 days of abuse! smile.gif Unfortunately the weekend ended with a fatality (not us) and one of the guys we went with writing his car off.

Duncan Graham
25th September 2008, 11:48
sheet. Never good to hear either of those statements :(

I hadn't heard about a fatality there from the locals.

How did you enjoy it apart from that Shaun - were you in your car ?

Still waiting for the new turbo to arrive.... AET are still waiting for the new turbine housing to turn up, and since the original was goosed the car is off the road.

I was always going to take mine, but the turn of events stopped that. I drove my mates RS Focus, completing 8 laps. I can't believe how much grip those things have got..... have not driven a FWD car like that before..... awesome bits of kit.

By the last lap I was starting to put the hammer down and my mate was having to hold on to the camera mount, stuck to the side window, to stop himself rolling on to me around some of the bends...... the guy is around 24stone, so if he had rolled, I think the car would of done as well! roflol

We met up with Fuzz and his cronies, so ended up going out get sh1t faced at night. :D

Great time, finished off by a night in Amsterdam on the way back! :D

Mark,
If my car is back on the road, I aim to go along with Litchfield Imports next month. They are taking their new Type20 along to complete some testing. It will be a two day RMA track event. Open pitlane and the full circuit, without the toll gates. :D

Let me know what dates you are looking at going during May, as I can see me going at least once a year whilst I still have the will to drive. :D

I'm planning to go again in May also, so would be good to see you all there, especially at night so we can take the piss out of Alv. :D

Couldn't believe Mike called him sooty !!! Felt like sliding under the table in embarrassment . redface.gif

Fuzz,
I didn't hear that :eek: ...... I suggest Alvin didn't either, as I never noticed Mike had no teeth part way through the night. :D

Yep... we will have to arrange something! smile.gif

well we are back and you were right Duncan it`s a truly awesome track/toll road that is rivalled by nothing here in the Uk,
tbh i don`t think it would be allowed to exist here due to the HEALTH and SAFETY brigade would just close it down! :( .
but as you said it is defo not a track to take lightly its defo a widow maker if not careful :eek: ,
never seen so much exotica in one carpark at the same time ferraris, porsche gt`s,maserati`,ford gt 40, lambos all mingling in with the usual skylines,evos,scoobys,
defo seems to bring all the bmw owners out of the woodwork never seen so many m3 csl`s in one place at a time! :D
then there is the sexy Sabien of top gear fame she drives the 4 up m5 v10 ring taxi like nothing i have ever seen comes passed you like your stood still then powerdrifts the back end out at silly speeds round brunchen bends etc. :cool:
will try and post some pics up later but i am still overdozing with adrenaline from the experience and defo recommend it to anyone! smile.gif

I always get a massive low after coming back after the high of being there. It takes a while to settle back to 'normal' life.

Love the place, just wish they had a TA round there :D

Just got back to the hotel, (working at Frankfurt-Hahn Airport, only 30miles away) having spent the day, (5 Laps) at the Nurburgring, DAM I NEED A BEER!! Going again on the 4 Nov for more of the same, it was good fun on my other trips, (Landrover Series 1 Truckcab (109"), Seirra Cosworth (saphire), but in the scoob, hell a whole new ball game, Check out my thread on the projects page for more details
